These are some of the top scholarships for international students studying in these programs.

Healthcare Scholarships

    • This is a program where 4,000 scholarships a year are given out for students in foreign countries to come to the U.S. to study medicine and science. Your country must have a program dedicated to Fulbright within the embassy in order to qualify to apply, as the embassy disburses funds and helps to arrange travel to the U.S.

There are plenty of other scholarships available for each program and degree. When looking for scholarships, make sure to check that they are for international students. There are also specific scholarships available for non-U.S. Citizens that are looking to study abroad in the U.S. You can review a full list of opportunities you can apply for on our Scholarship Opportunities page.
